    Fingers on right mouse buttons. Neg in 3... 2... 1...

    AFI are subheadlining with Lostprophets too. Kinda annoyed by that, given I'll probably be [strike]suffering through Bloc Party[/i] camping the front of the Main Stage ready for Radiohead (:love:). There's pretty much bugger-all else been announced for the NME that I wanna see.

    There'd best be some decent comedy on during the day too. Chances of Stephen Lynch? Few I bet

    a few people have said you get some alcohol, others have said nothing?

    i don't understand why people believe the myth, they must realise when for example at 08, no one with a 07 band got anything etc.

    Ha no you don't get anything. I have no idea why people keep the wristbands on for eternity, it's pretty gross.

    I remember hearing the rumour that you got free entry for the next year as well.

    Yeah I don't get it either. Don't see the point in showing off you went to a festival that about 80,000 other people went to aswell. But then I hate wearing stuff round my wrists so maybe i'll never get it...

    They won't... they tend to stick to American/Australian comedians who aren't that well known over here, or less famous (or not at all) British comedians.

    Seeing as Michael McIntyre was there last year, as was Phil Juppitus and the year before had Simon Amstell and Ed Byrne, I wouldn't exactly believe him.

    However, the alternative stage has very different timings to the music stages and the headliners are generally on during the afternoon rather than late on.

    You'll probably be looking at smaller acts than the above. I wouldn't completely exclude Bill Bailey I s'pose, but... No, it just won't happen. I remember seeing Simon Amstell and Ed Byrne headline back in 2007 - expect that kind of level.

    The comedy headliners are usually on at about 3pm, so you definitely won't be missing the high-end bands in the evening. IIRC they turn the comedy tent into something else at night. Can't rememebr what though.

    Stephen Lynch played last year!? Can someone PLEASE get him back? :puppyeyes:

    Thanks, I wasn't aware the headliners were on that early.
